Senior School Robotics Whoa!Bots Team Earns an Impressive Finish
The Senior School Robotics team, named the Whoa!Bots, competed in the Southwestern Pennsylvania FIRST Tech Challenge on Saturday, January 13. In a year of extraordinary growth, the Whoa!Bots fell just short of winning the tournament, earning a remarkable second place finish in the Finalist Alliance out of the 21 teams that entered the competition.
Despite playing only 2 and a half quarters, each of our starters scored between 14 and 17 points as the first 8 players had only 2 turnovers among the group. My compliments to our guys for playing with energy and continuing to share the ball so well. We are the only team in the area with five players averaging double figures which is an amazing statistic and great testimony to the skills, the basketball IQ and the outstanding team players we have once again this year! Our three guys who help us off the bench have figured out how to best help this team in so many ways that don't show up in the newspapers' stats!
